What is new?

NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN VISIONS DU RÉEL'S PROGRAMME STRUCTURE
In continuation of past editions, the Festival confirms its will to discover new films, filmmakers and artists. With this in mind, first films, which previously were shown in the Regard Neuf section, may now be featured in every section of the Festival.

BURNING LIGHTS COMPETITION
The Burning Lights Competition is a new international competition dedicated to new vocabularies and expressions, to research and to narrative and formal experimentation, open to medium-length and feature films.

NATIONAL COMPETITION
A strong National Competition is included in the programme: the prizes awarded by the jury are no longer given throughout the sections, but are limited to this competition.

LATITUDES
Latitudes, a new non-competitive section (for feature films) that aims at revealing a panorama of current documentary practices.

OPENING SCENES
And finally, Opening Scenes, a non-competitive section dedicated to first short films or student films. The invited filmmakers present their films as part of the Festival’s official selection and participate in a specially developed programme of Industry-related professional activities.


The new organisation of Visions du Réel's sections goes as follows:

• INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM COMPETITION
• BURNING LIGHTS COMPETITION
• NATIONAL COMPETITION
• INTERNATIONAL MEDIUM LENGTH AND SHORT FILM COMPETITION
• GRAND ANGLE
• LATITUDES
• OPENING SCENES
• MAÎTRE DU RÉEL
• ATELIERS
• FOCUS
• DOC ALLIANCE

For more detailed information on the sections, please consult the Regulations.
